what: Complete 540 Draft EIS Public Meeting
when: Monday, Dec. 7, 2015 at 4:15 p.m.
where: Barwell Road Elementary School
3925 Barwell Road, Raleigh
The North Carolina Department of Transportation will hold the first of three public meetings to give the public a chance to review and make comments about the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the project known as Complete 540
at Barwell Elementary beginning at 6 p.m.
Jamille Robbins, NCDOT Public Involvement Group Leader and Eric Midkiff, Head of Project Development at NCDOT for Complete 540, will be available to answer questions. NCDOT staff will not be available for an interview during the meeting itself, as they will be assisting members of the public.
NCDOT will rely on data from the Draft EIS and public input from the public meetings to identify the path the route will take. The Draft EIS identifies the impacts to the local environment, historical resources, homes and businesses and other resources along the proposed routes as well as other information such as traffic studies. It does not eliminate any of the alternatives for Complete 540. NCDOT plans to announce the recommendation for the preferred alternative in the spring of 2016.
Media parking is available at the school in the front of the school in the bus turn around.
